Euler–Mascheroni constant (ndash)

The Euler–Mascheroni constant is commonly written with an "–" – (not an "-" hyphen, as would be the case for the compound name of one person) since the two names refer to two different persons.

Weisstein, Eric W., Euler-Mascheroni Constant, from MathWorld—A Wolfram Web Resource. [http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Euler-MascheroniConstant.html]

uses an hyphen (since the names use only ASCII characters, while it should actually be an n dash).—Daniel Forgues 20:42, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Category was Category:Euler–Mascheroni constant, with an n dash.— Daniel Forgues 20:45, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

I don't know, for some reason this doesn't bother me as much as en dashes being used as subtraction signs in non-monospace fonts. Have you had a chance to look at the quadratic number fields article? Alonso del Arte 01:20, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
An "—" — versus an "–" – versus a "−" − versus a "-" hyphen... mmm, the minus seems just a tiny bit shorter (and fatter) than the n dash, quite subtle.— Daniel Forgues 06:24, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
The page quadratic number fields should be moved to quadratic integer rings (i.e. ring of integers of quadratic number fields), and the page quadratic number fields should be rewritten to emphasize about the field properties. I did lots of edits, please help in replacing number fields by integer rings, then I still have to review the whole contents... Thanks.— Daniel Forgues 06:24, 22 September 2012 (UTC)
